Seven Bank has begun research and development of next-generation ATMs in collaboration with Hokkaido University and Kushiro National College of Technology. As society progresses with the declining birthrate, aging population, digitalization, and cashless society, Seven Bank's ATMs will evolve to be more convenient and society-friendly.

 According to Seven Bank, the joint research will include Professor Junichiro Kawahara of the Graduate School of Letters and Letters from Hokkaido University, Professor Masato Yamamoto and Associate Professor Daisuke Sakamoto of the Graduate School of Information Science, and Professor Hiroshi Amamoto of the Kushiro National College of Technology. We will explore customer experiences, analyze predictive behavior using AI and image recognition, explore new terminal interfaces, and create a safe space using sensing technology.

 The joint research with Hokkaido University will begin in May and is scheduled to continue for one year. Joint research with Kushiro National College of Technology is scheduled to begin in 5. Using cutting-edge research to analyze people's behavior and psychology, we will design the next generation of ATMs.

 Masaaki Matsuhashi, President of Seven Bank, said, ``Our ATMs are the culmination of combining the latest technology and unique ideas, but society is changing rapidly. Through this joint research, we have obtained completely new ideas and developed original ideas. We want to continue to provide value."
